Answer: hi dear! the green stool may be due to formula milk or the foremilk( milk at the beginning of a feeding which consists of low fat content and high lactose content). and also if the mother or baby is on iron supplements. -if formula milk is given then dear you will have to stop the formula milk. -and for foremilk you will have to feed the baby for more than 10mins from one side to get the hind milk also.(Hindmilk is the high-fat, high-calorie breast milk,t's richer, thicker, and creamier than foremilk). -and if irons supplements is given to baby or taken by the mother then dear you will have to stop using them. if the motion is loose then it might be due to GIT infection in such cases a stool test will be required dear to make sure if any infection there. and if yes then dont get worried. proper antibiotics will solve the matter. so dont worry.! take care dear.

Question: My 7 month old baby poops 4 to 5 times a day and the poop colour is greenish or sometimes greenish yellow...i am so tensed. I give her three times solid feed and in between breastmilk...pls suggest...
Answer: Hi dear, The frequent poop issue would.be on and off till 1 year.most often after the solid food is been introduced,some babies have tough time digesting certain food items.and they have frequent poop issue.i hope you have not introduced cow milk as yet.cow milk should.not be given in any form to babies below one year.the green poop could be due to that too.observe if baby is allergic to any particular food that you recently introduced.most often the imbalance of foremilk and hindmilk of breastmilk could cause green poop too.so feed one breast completly before switching to other breast.it is not a matter of concern unless baby is severely dehydrated.keeo giving light food and in smaller amount.

Answer: Hello dear, this is normal don't worry.Consistently green stools in the breastfed baby can indicate that it is an imbalance of foremilk the low-calorie milk that comes first in a feeding – and not enough hindmilk, the good higher-fat stuff often resulting in frothy green stools. a sensitivity to something in the mother's diet, such as cow's milk products
